This report was publicized by Fukushima Diary

here is the Japanese link

Here is the English link and a google translation

University of Tokyo, Hongo, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo. 安田講堂前の芝生上1メートルでは0.127マイクロシーベルト毎時だが(画像をクリックすると拡大します)、講堂片隅の吹きだまりにシンチレーション線量計を置くと、数値は見る間に上昇して1.113に達して安定した。 1 meter on the lawn in front Yasuda Auditorium but hourly 0.127 micro Sievert (Click to enlarge images), placing the dosimeter scintillation drift of the corner auditorium, the numbers are reaching a stable 1.113 to rise during show was. 隣の苔むした場所では1.382まで上がった。 Neighboring mossy places up to 1.382.

MAJIA HERE: 1.113 microsieverts an hour would lead to an annual exposure of 9.74 millisieverts from external exposure to radiation in this spot annualized.

Hot spots higher than this level of exposure have been identified in Tokyo.

The Soviets evacuated when annual doses from the environment were at 5 millisieverts a year or higher

9 plus millisieverts a year from the air/soil is alot of radiation and does not include all of the internal emitters inhaled, ingested, and otherwise consumed by individuals in Japan while breathing, drinking, and eating....

Japan has set its "limit" at 20 millisieverts a year from total exposure (WAY HIGH)

Problems emerged in the Ukraine at levels lower than Japan's new limit:  “Whole body doses received from external radiation from the Ukrainian part of the 30-km exclusion zone showed an average value of 15 millisieverts.” (source OECD, 1995)
